Session 1, The South: The Way of the Hero is the beginning of the Medicine Wheel
wisdom teachings where you learn to shed your attachment to your personal past, the same
way Mother Serpent, Sachamama, sheds her skin. This is an intensive personal
development training that is rooted in the luminous healing traditions of the Laika,
Earthkeepers of the Andes. The Yanachaqui process will empower three stones that will
become part of your Mesa, and you will receive four initiation Rites.

The South Makeup Session is an opportunity for you to join the 16 people who completed the
South Session in February. This makeup session will be limited to 8 persons. Admission to
the South Makeup Session will be contingent on a one-on-one mutual interview; please call
Tomas at 805.798.5648 to arrange this.
